LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The woman accused of driving her vehicle up on a crowded sidewalk on the Las Vegas Strip more than a year ago was found competent to stand trial.

On Friday, the competency assessment for Lakeisha Holloway found the woman competent. She had been committed to Lakes Crossing maximum security psychiatric facility in Northern Nevada following the Dec. 20, 2015 incident.

Last year, Holloway was ordered for mental competency testing despite refusing to cooperate with her defense attorneys on an evaluation.

According to Las Vegas Justice Court, Holloway's case is expected to return to the court's system and a preliminary hearing will be set. It was not expressed in court Friday when her next hearing will take place.
